The safety and health for visitors and employees is our top priority. In order to offer you the best possible conditions when you visit us, we have adapted our facilities and adopted new routines according to prevailing circumstances. Our meeting place is vast which makes it easy to keep a distance.
For your safety
- We clean even more frequently.
- We provide hand disinfectant at the entrances of our hotels and restaurants and clear signs to restrooms where you can wash your hands.
- We limit the number of guests at our restaurants.
- Food and beverages may only be consumed sitting at tables alternatively at stools by the bar counter with sufficient distance.
- We have customized all areas with greater distance between furniture.
- We have opened more breakfast rooms. We also offer a breakfast bag to-go.
- We have placed distance markers in our lobby, by the lifts and in restaurants.

Events and meetings
Since March 12, 2020, public gatherings and public events with more than 500 participants must not be held in Sweden. On March 27, the Government, on the recommendation of the Public Health Authority, decided to further limit public gatherings and public events from Sunday, March 29. The decision, which is valid until further notice, means that the permitted limit for the number of participants is lowered from 500 to 50 people. The Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre Group obviously acts in accordance with this decision in all aspects of our business.
Therefore, as long as the decision is in force, we will not carry out any site events with more than 50 participants. Intensive work is underway to find new dates or opportunities for those events that have been affected by the current rules so far. Many already have new, fixed dates. For the latest information about our upcoming exhibitions and events, please visit their respective websites.
